The Ghanaian perspective
Submitted by Michaela Sholes
We are so appreciative of the local partners who work with us to help us do what we do, who give us insights into the Ghanaian perspective in general and the Krobo perspective in particular, and advise us on how to create partnerships/avoid missteps. After her travels overseas during the last few weeks, I was glad for the opportunity to visit Manye Esther in order to check up on her health and discuss some logistics with her regarding the upcoming training. Although she has had some challenges to her health recently, she was in good spirits and we shared a productive discussion. We look forward to having her representatives join us to help with translation for next week's session and hope Manye's health allows her to join us. Local collaboration, in our opinion, is the only way for efforts to be both effective and sustainable.
